Baby Shane – A short life with a lot of love

I’m scared too

“We might be doing GAP.” “Are you scared?” “Yes.” Me too. Every time we go out, I’m scared of getting into a conversation and saying the wrong things. I’m scared of getting into a debate with a moral relativist, and not knowing how to defend morality. I’m scared that I’ll talk to someone post-abortive and […]

Choosing to Abort Girls at BPAS?

The mask has truly slipped and the reality of abortion in Britain is becoming known, all thanks to a dreadful PR blunder from Ann Furedi, head of the largest abortion-provider in the UK (BPAS).

Don’t apologise for being pro-life: reach out with love instead to abortion supporters

Some people presume that because I’m young and female I should automatically be “pro-choice”.

When the Washington Post decides a ‘fetus’ is a baby

The Washington Post recently reported the tragic stabbing in the stomach of a pregnant woman, resulting in the death of her unborn baby. The crime was widely condemned as being horrific and brutal.

Aborting away the Special Olympics?

As I approached my 21st first week in pregnancy I received a letter in the post, belatedly, to come along to the local maternity hospital for my 20 week scan. Along with the letter came an unwelcome enclosure: a euphemistically titled  “survey of the Down Syndrome screening process”. I was horrified. Why has our society, […]

Is the evidence clear on when life begins?

When does life begin? Is this a question to which science has established an answer? Or is it something scientists can’t agree on?

All abortions are intrinsically wrong: not just those targeting baby girls

The Daily Telegraph’s exposure of sex-selective abortions garnered massive coverage recently in Britain, and thankfully there was widespread condemnation of the practice that is, of course, so rampant in some countries that it is estimated that 163 million girls have been aborted simply for being the ‘wrong’ sex. One article in the Irish Times ended […]
